Will proposed to Stefanie on 10/4/16 – as a CHP officer, 10/4 is an easy date for him to remember! Stefanie thought it was just a normal date night as they headed to Flemings in Fresno, California. When they arrived, there was a bouquet of flowers on the table. Since Will has a tendency to be sweet and romantic, Stefanie was still completely clueless about the proposal on the way!
After dinner, they headed to pick up Will’s sons… except Will had coordinated with his mother and sister for this surprise, so instead, Stefanie found a candlelit hallway with rose petals and tea lights along the floor. They led to a big rose petal shaped heart in the middle of the living room. Stefanie said that it wasn’t until he started talking the she realized what was happening! She calls it literally the happiest day of her life.
Stefanie and William are just the sweetest couple, and anyone can see that they are perfect for one another. The love and support their family and friends clearly have for the two is not only a testament to their relationship, but a great indicator that they have a valuable network of support in their journey as a new family.
In just the short time I have been blessed to get to know this couple, I have been impressed with the strength and sincerity that Stefanie projects… William really is a lucky guy to have found such a gem! (Growing up in a family of law enforcement officers, I have come to realize that family of service members are made out of special stuff. Doubly so the spouses of those in law enforcement. Triply so those who CHOOSE to marry into a law enforcement family!)
I have no doubt in my mind that Stefanie and William are in for a lifetime of love and happiness. God bless you two and once again.. CONGRATULATIONS!!!! <3
